Huntersville, NC (January 10, 2012)– Andreoli & Associates, Inc. (A&A), a leading tire and auto service software developer, has certified the Motion F5v tablet for use as a “car side” data collection and customer service device with the company’s HITS BPOS, point-of-sale (POS) software.
“After an extensive evaluation, the F5v stood out as the “best-of-breed” tablet for car-side use,” states Mike Andreoli, president of Andreoli. “The F5v’s sunlight readable display and optional bar code scanner gives our clients an extremely fast and efficient way to capture VINs, review service history, and write up repair orders right in the parking lot.”
Available with an optional docking station, which supports an external monitor, the Motion F5v can also be used by a service writer as a regular point-of-sale workstation. The unit is lightweight, drop resistant, and equipped with Gorilla glass for added durability.
Andreoli commented further on the suitability of the unit’s integrated pen input and hand writing recognition software for car-side, “Hand written input is automatically converted to text, which makes the process of writing up a repair order on the F5v very similar to writing on paper.”
The company has posted a video on their web site (www.aasys.com/carside) that demonstrates the F5v in use at car-side. The video shows the system converting hand written input to text and the scanning of a door-edge VIN using the (optional) bar code scanner.
